yeah there was a very long discussion about this when it was first noticed early last year. Consensus is its legal by virtue of it not being explicitly banned in the rules. Consensus is also that he will have a short career ended abruptly by injury.

Uhhh...every pitcher takes their foot off the rubber in their delivery, just because it's a funny little hop doesn't automatically make it a balk.

most people have no idea what a balk is though. For example you'd be shocked to find out how few people know that you can't balk without runners on. (since the entire implementation of the balk is to prevent pitchers from trying to deceive baserunners unfairly)

Doesn't mean they learned anything

Several umpires have no idea what a balk is either. Most lefties commit balks when they go to first.

They don't have to. A pitcher doesn't have to come off the rubber in order to fake a throw to second or third. He has to come off the rubber to throw (or fake the throw) to first.

I love the guy, but I wish he wouldn't have done this. He'll probably get a good shot at joining the rotation based purely on his reputation, and he'll likely get hurt halfway through the year. He's just too old to make a comeback like this.
